Dalziell & Bourne Bite as Sharks Tame Tigers

Sunday, April 13, 2014 - 12:34 PM

A stunning debut by Richard Bourne and a dominant midfield display by Bradd Dalziell has seen East Fremantle  ravage a toothless Claremont by 75 points at East Fremantle Oval.

18 year old Bourne will now be on the watch list of every AFL scout after the dashing small forward kicked 4 goals in the Shark's commanding 21.11(137) to 9.8(62) win over Claremont.

Bourne immediately impressed the home crowd with his pace and clean ball use, but it was his goal from his first kick in league football that had the Moss Street crowd buzzing.

Dalziell also bagged 4 goals and collected 30 disposals through the midfield as the Sharks midfielders had a day to remember.

East Fremantle put in their most confident display of the season so far with their methodical gameplay coming together thanks to clean disposal in all areas of the ground.

A dominant first half effort saw the Sharks lead by 32 points at the main break with Jack Perham and Bourne posing  major threats inside the forward fifty, kicking three goals each for the half.

The game started ominously for the home side when Keifer Yu converted from close range for the Tigers after just 19 seconds, however East Fremantle recovered from the poor start with Bradd Dalziell and Bourne combining for five of the Shark's six first quarter goals.

Claremont overturned the 11 point quarter time deficit to lead by a point following goals to Jack Richardson and former Shark Andrew Foster early in the second term.

Enter Jack Perham; the former Collingwood Rookie put a poor start to the season behind him kicking three consecutive goals to put East Fremantle into a comfortable position at the main break.

Both sides started sluggishly in the third stanza before back to back goals saw the Sharks extend their lead to 43 points.

Claremont struggled to gain any control of the match with Luke Blackwell's goal their first in over half an hour of football.

A set shot goal to Brett Peake and Bourne's fourth for the afternoon saw the Sharks take an unassailable 51 point lead into three quarter time.

With the result a foregone conclusion East Fremantle kicked 6 final quarter goals to Claremont's 2 to win by 75 points.

Scott Hancock, Sean Henson and Cameron Eardley impressed for East Fremantle through the middle, whilst Jordan Doritich and Tom Howlett put in strong performances across the half back line.

Big man James Bristow capped off the game for the Blue and Whites kicking an early contender for goal of the year - the ruckman dodging five Claremont players before unleashing a drop punt from 60 meters out.

Match reports- Reserves, Colts and Development Squad

Friday, March 28, 2014 - 1:25 PM

Young Pups Round 1 Winners

Round 1 at East Fremantle Oval got off to a great start with a young Colts’ side defeating West Perth by 21 points; 9.6=60 to 5.9=39

In what was at times a scrappy affair, as often happens in round 1, the East Fremantle boys’ excellent defensive pressure forced West Perth in to error which resulted in only 25 inside 50’s for the entire game.  With midfielders Fraser Perry (26 possessions), Tom Bennett (22) and Jordan Snadden (18) leading the possession count it was no wonder that inside 50 count went East Fremantle’s way 40-25.  Whilst we didn’t make the most of our opportunities Callum Ellis did provide an important focal target up forward, kicking 2 goals from 14 possessions and 5 marks.  Nathan Morton-Smith, in his Colts’ debut, led a strong backline all day, with his strong aggression and competitive spirit. 

This weekend the Colts take on a Subiaco team that will be very keen to rebound after being beaten by premiership favourites South Fremantle in their round 1 clash.

East Fremantle  9.6=60 def. West Perth 5.9=39

Goals; 2 C.Ellis, 1 J.Williamson, G.Tomelty, J.Cripps, J.Snadden, C.Holmes, J.Gittos, P.Delaney

Best; C.Ellis, N.Morton-Smith, M.Sewell, C.Strnadica, T.Bennett

Reserves off To a Winning Start in Round 1

Following on from the Colts’ win, the Reserves were keen to continue their winning from their final pre-season game a week ago when they took to the field against 2013 Reserves Grand Finalists West Perth.  Our emerging senior players got off to a great start, using the ball efficiently and repelling many of the West Perth forward thrusts and by half time had opened up a commanding 31 point lead.  But as you’d expect from a side that played in last year’s GF, West Perth kept coming in the second half and at one point late in the final quarter closed that gap to within a few points.  To our boys’ credit they dug deep, steadied and held on to take a 10 point win.  Tom Hooker, after playing the pre-season fixtures in the League side, was outstanding in the midfield, particularly in first half, working tirelessly both ways.  Round 1 Captain, Jarryd Lindsay, was a tower of strength across the half back line, along with Miles Franklin (in his Reserves debut) and with the dynamic duo, in small forwards Louis Cronan and Tom Bowey (3 goals each) there were winners all across the ground. 

Like the Colts, the Reserves side will face a Subiaco team that lost their round 1 contest against last years’ Reserves Premiers South Fremantle.

East Fremantle 11.11=77 def. West Perth 10.7=67

Goals; 3 L.Cronan, T.Bowey, 2 D.Anthony, 1 T.Chalwell, C.Fannon, R.Wallis

Best; J.Lindsay, T.Hooker, M.Franklin, T.Bowey, L.Cronan

A reminder that both the Colts and Reserves will be playing their fixture this weekend at East Fremantle Oval at 9am and 11:25am respectively.

16’s Academy In the Winners’ Circle

After a nail-biting round 1 loss to Perth last Sunday the 16’s Academy boys were pumped to take on West Perth, following the League match on Saturday.  With a notable improvement in their attack on the ball and their opponent, the young East Freo boys took control of the game through many West Perth forced turnovers.  Although the half-time result did not reflect the control the boys’ had on the game our boys did turn in at half-time with their noses in front.  As the game went on our ball movement and disposal became more efficient and it was in the final quarter that the East Fremantle 16’s were able to break open the game and run away with a very spirited victory, to make it 4 from 4 for the day for the mighty Sharks.

The 16’s will play Subiaco this Saturday at East Fremantle Oval, starting at 2:10pm.

East Fremantle 7.10=52 def. West Perth 3.6=24

Best; M.Burton, C.Davies, J.Sutherland

Sharks Cull Premiers

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 - 3:35 PM

East Fremantle have continued their impressive pre-season form with a nail biting 3 point win over West Perth at East Fremantle Oval. A last minute mark by young defender Matthew Jupp saw East Fremantle hang on to beat a fast finishing West Perth 11.7 (73) to 10.10 (70).

Despite the Sharks leading by 33 points midway through the final term, last year's Premiers mounted a stunning comeback to draw within 3 points of the home side.
Goals to Mathew Bartholomew and Matt Fowler had East Fremantle worried before a stunning roving goal by Brett Peake gave the Sharks a slim 9 point lead.
Another late West Perth goal to Jordan Jones shortened the margin back to 3 points before Jupp's mark and a subsequent free kick to Rory O'Brien saw the Sharks over the line.

East Fremantle led at every change after New Sharks skipper Rory O'Brien won the toss and elected to kick to the Canning Highway end of the ground; which was being aided by a strong breeze.
Despite the slight advantage, it took East Fremantle 5 minutes to open the scoring with Rob Young kicking truly after marking strongly in the goal square.
West Perth responded 6 minutes later with a goal of their own through Shaun Marusic, before Boston Williamson kicked 2 goals within a minute - instantly impressing the home crowd on his East Fremantle debut.
A late Matt Guadagnin goal saw the Sharks' quarter time lead reduced to 7 points.

The second term was marred by a clash between East Fremantle's Sam Reid and the Falcon's Aaron Black, leaving the young Shark with a gash to the head and Black's name entering the umpire's book.
Both sides' half backs were kept busy as the midfielders struggled to hit up forward options.
It took 11 minutes before East Fremantle finally added to their half time score with Jack Perham and Michael Edwards extending the lead to 19 points.

Again the Cardinals added some respectability to the score line with Jay Van Berlo goaling late to reduce the margin to 10 points at the main break. West Perth would rue their missed chances in the second quarter - putting the ball out on the full three times from set shots - as would East Fremantle, as both sides struggled to handle the windy conditions.

West Perth started the third term confidently with Steve Potente finally registering consecutive goals for the Blue and Red.
The third term continued much in the style of the previous two with both sides battling the breeze and some torrid defending.
Andrew Stephen and Matthew Jupp were particularly impressive in keeping West Perth's forwards quiet as Rory O'Brien and Bradd Dalziell took hold of the midfield.
The Sharks broke free and kicked the next three goals to go into three quarter time with a game high 22 point lead.

Brett Peake and Ryan Lester-Smith kicked early goals to extend East Fremantle's lead to 33 points before West Perth went up a gear kicking 5 straight goals.
West Perth's run of goals was overshadowed by the injury of Andrew Strjk who left the ground with what appeared to be a serious injury to his right shoulder.
Peake's third goal gave East Fremantle enough of a lead to secure the win as all three grades and the development squad took home the Premiership points on the opening day of the season.
Brock O'Brien had an impressive return to league football with 25 disposals across the half back as his brother continued his midfield dominance from last year with 37 disposals.

Bradd Dalziell capped off his 50th game with 33 touches while Jamie McNamara impressed with 27 possessions on his return to Shark Park.

EF 3.2, 5.2, 8.5, 11.7 (73)
WP 2.1, 3.4, 4.7, 10.10 (70)

Goals
EF - Peake 3; Lester-Smith, Williamson 2, Edwards, Perham, Dalziell, Young 1
WP - Bartholomew, Van Berlo 2; Tsalikis, Fowler, Jones, Marusic, Potente, Guadagnin 1.
